What a little gem! We booked this as a stopover point on the way from Las Vegas to Yosemite and never thought it would be one of the best (of 8) places we stayed in.

It was a novelty for us to drive in and park outside the room, the motel has so much character, the check in staff were very efficient, views from the front of the motel just breath-taking, breakfast really welcomed and onsite washer dryer was great for us. There was also a small pool but we didn't make use of that as we were only staying 1nt. We went down to the village for a lovely meal that evening and visited the Movie Museum on our way out the next day, highly recommend going there, some great movie props.

Had a great 3 night stay here while exploring the Alabama Hills. The bed was super comfortable, the room was very clean, and the staff was very friendly. The room also had blackout drapes, which was key since we slept during the day and stayed out late to photography the Milky Way.

The experience was seamless from a late check in to morning full delicious breakfast. clean quiet room that was in great working condition and has a great fan option on the AC unit to help us sleep. We checked in late and someone was there to help us quickly and efficiently. We asked for a room away from the freeway so it was real quiet. Lots of channels on the cable TV. Shower was hot and consistent temp. They also has shampoo body wash and conditioner in the shower that was citirs smelled great.

We spent two nights at this Best Western. The staff was friendly, however the room was small. The bathroom was also very small. They have dedicated parking stalls for the room which enabled guests to park close to their room. This was the best breakfast at a Best Western since the start of the Covid-19 safety precautions. What happens is you call the front desk with your order from the menu, and it will be prepared for you by hotel staff. The portions were on the small side, but it did have hot protein, scrambled eggs, toast, juice, coffee...

Our family stayed one night before a week-long backpack and were happy to see the safety protocols that the Best Western Plus Frontier Motel implemented. These included all workers wearing masks, plexiglass shields between front desk personnel and guests, hand sanitizer in the lobby, and the complimentary breakfast served in packages and per guest instead of a buffet. We found our room and bathroom to be very clean, and relished the memory of them as we backpacked each of the following days. My younger son and husband enjoyed the pool, too. The next time we stay in Lone Pine, we will make our reservation here.

When I walked into my king-bedded room, it was immediately obvious that the room had been recently remodeled. My perception was confirmed when I saw workers remodeling another unit not too far from me. Everything was sparking clean, well-appointed, and modern looking. The bed was very comfortable, room quiet, and curtains kept out the light. There was a small table and chairs in the room, which came in handy for eating the breakfast provided by the motel.

There is ample storage space in an armoire and dresser. I was happy to have a refrigerator for keeping some water and juices chilled. I didn’t use the pool, but I did enjoy the view of Mt. Whitney visible from the front of the motel. Although located on highway 395, the motel is set back far enough that I didn’t notice traffic noise.

The bathroom had plenty of space for toiletries. The shower was terrific. I suggest that the hotel add some hooks for towels, as there is plenty of space on the blank walls. Perhaps this is part of the remodeling effort?

Each morning, guests phone the front desk to order breakfast items—eggs, muffins, and so on. When the order is ready, the office phones and then you can either take the food back to your room, eat indoors, or eat poolside. I imagine when COVID restrictions ease, that Best Western will resume buffet service. In the meantime, this is a good solution.

POSITIVES: Large spacious attractive comfortable room! Wife loved it. Outstanding bathroom amenities.... Soaps were far above any competitors products, bath towels were huge and very fluffy. Beds were comfortable. And the place was Dog friendly!

NEGATIVES: Poor TV selections, excessive heater noise, very poor coffee (undrinkable in our opinion).

I still consider this place outstanding and would stay there again!!

We stayed as a family for one night on our way home from Death Valley and chose to stay in Lone Pine because of its location near the Alabama Hills. This Best Western exceeded our expectations. The room was big so we could unload our car and still have plenty of room to relax in the room. The fridge and microwave were nice (the lobby has a small freezer with emergency frozen dinners for purchase if you're coming in late) and the room had been nicely remodeled. Beds were comfortable. Nice surprise jacuzzi tub. Also, it was surprisingly quiet given that it's on the high way. Maybe being just out of town helps with this? Visitor's Center is just down the road to load up on maps of the area and Death Valley. Finally, the breakfast was a veritable feast of hot and cold options. Family of three enjoyed the spacious room and hearty breakfast for only $90/night. Staff were all friendly!

This motel had a superb breakfast. All food was well prepared and laid out, and the kitchen did not run out of certain things like orange juice, milk, eggs, sausage, etc. like other motels i have stayed at recently. This is one of the few motels still offering a deluxe breakfast. The room was spacious and immaculate, and the air conditioner worked well. Each room had an assigned parking place, which is rare among motels, but this enabled me to park right in front of my room. There was no noise from adjoining rooms, so I slept well.

It is rare that a humble looking motel should earn a 5 star review. Now that doesn't mean the Best Western is a 5 star property like a Peninsula or Four Seasons, but that the standards by which we judge it were not only met but exceeded.

From the outside, the property looks like any other roadside motel from the 50's. That is actually part of its charm. It is clean and well maintained, it even has a small relaxing looking swimming pool. The rooms, however, punch above their weight class. The larger guest rooms all have names of 50's and 60's movie stars. We were lucky enough to spend a night in room 172, the Roy Rogers room. Unlike so many 2 star properties, the owners here actually but thought and care into designing the room. From the spaciousness of it, to the comfortable couch and leather chair, to the large TV with a large number of channels. The bathroom had great, lemon scented toiletries, and even had a jetted tub!

Here is what really makes the property special, the "named" rooms all have pictures relating to their namesake. Our's had a bunch of photos of Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Trigger. The room itself even connected to the Dale Evans room. That was a nice, a sweet gesture.

The room was spotless, you can tell the employees care. Parking was ample. Great dining options only minutes away.

Absolutely loved our short time here. If we are ever in the area again, we would only choose the Best Western Frontier.

Thanks for the great stay.
